The Lloyd’s List Podcast: IUMI leaders set out stall for 2019
The International Union of Marine Insurance held its winter meeting in London earlier this week, and David Osler caught up with a trio of the trade association’s leading lights. Richard Turner, Helle Hammer and Lars Lange reveal what they think the year ahead holds in store, and look forward to the organisation’s conference in Toronto in September.
KEY players in the International Union of Marine Insurance set out their perspectives for 2019 in this week’s Lloyd’s List podcast, recorded after the organisation’s winter meeting in London earlier this week.
According to IUMI president Richard Turner, the trade association’s priorities for the year ahead are membership services, education, lobbying and digitalisation.
As a consequence of Brexit, Mr Turner has recently upped sticks from London to Luxembourg to head up RSA’s specialty business, and he also discusses his move to the Grand Duchy.
Oslo-based Helle Hammer, who is managing director of the Nordic Association of Marine Insurers, known as Cefor, offers some thoughts on contaminated bunkers and the insurance implications of the impending International Maritime Organization sulphur cap.
And finally, IUMI secretary-general Lars Lange — who commutes into Hamburg — discusses his expanded role as IUMI’s delegate to the International Maritime Organization, which will take him to London more often.
Finally, all three look forward to this year’s IUMI conference, which takes place in Toronto in September. The common theme will be Confronting the Chaos for a Sustainable Future.
